Available to preorder - this title is due to release in March.
Kitty, the cute and mute cartoon protagonist of Chaos, a Love Story: The Disorder of Seeing and Being Seen, embarks on an ill-fated endeavour to win the eyes of her estranged counterpart Mickey in this genre-defying book by Charlie Engman. Through a cat-and-mouse narrative of unrequited attention-seeking, Engman unravels the contradictions of contemporary visual culture as Kitty and Mickey struggle to find each other and them-selves amidst the chaos of imagery, technology, and mass production. Extensively illustrated with a wide range of images both original and found, this book attempts to tackle the beautiful, horny, horrible vulnerability of looking and being perceived.
